KitchenAid Food Grinder Review

I stopped in Canadian fishermen and
you’re probably wondering why have I
traded in the boat for the kitchen why
is this a stand mixer and not a fishing
rod and why is this a piece of beef as
opposed to fish stick around and I’ll
tell you all about it okay so I’ve got a
stand mixer here and you know what I was
doing some of my research on how to use
it I noticed that you can actually put a
whole bunch of different attachments on
to a stand mixer one of which is a food
grinder and so this is a KitchenAid
stand mixer I reached out to the folks
at KitchenAid and they were kind enough
to loan me a food grinder to try it for
myself because I love the idea of being
complete control of grinding my own meat
for the purposes of hamburgers or meat
bla meatballs meatloaf putting it into a
pasta sauce whatever so really show you
quickly what Peyman in the package and
then I’ll show you how to hook it up and
then we’ll take the next step which is
preparing the meat so this is the
grinder itself this is the hopper where
the meat goes in you’ve unthread this
piece and you’ve got two dials here
which identify these are stainless steel
how thick the actual grind is going to
be so it comes with two and it comes
with a blade and then this worm drive
right here that pops out it’s just a
good corkscrew and that’s what spins
around it’ll drag the move through push
it up against the blade as the blade
turns and then they’ll force the meat
out through whichever set and you’ve got
it four so I need to go with the thinner
setting here today so you put it in
tighten it up now when you’re actually
doing the grinding you also have this
guy here which is like a plunger where
if you need any help pushing some of the
meat down that’s what that’s used for
auto actual stand mixer people always
wonder what’s this unthread this pop up
the little covered plate and then this
attachment and just like anything
whether or not it’s a pasta maker and
this face the food grinder pops into
that
take your screw back on tighten that
down and are you ready to go all you
need is the meat so stick around for a
second I’m going to show you the next
part which is how I actually prepare the
meat that I’m going to put into this
grinder okay
so first of all why is this in any way
related to fishing it’s because it’s at
the end of February March is about a
week away and I’ve begun final prep
actually for some of my spring fishing
trips part of that prep is getting the
food ready I like to make sure that I
buy food in advance I get it on sale in
this particular case burgers and ground
beef that type of thing or an important
part of our fishing trips and so I can
control exactly what meat I buy and I
can buy it on sale so what I did I was
actually at Costco and they had sirloin
roasts on sale so I bought myself a big
ol sirloin roast and what I’ve done in
between Clips here and I went through
that roast and I just trimmed off the
fat the silver skin any of this seeing
you any of the things that make it a
little bit tough then what I’ve done is
I’ve been cutting it up into strips
strips that will fit about the size of
this hopper so if we take a look here’s
a piece here it’s gonna be a little bit
thick so all I do take the knife give it
a little cut into the size that I need
it to be anything that I think is going
to be a little bit too big I trim it
down now the reason it’s important to
get at the right size is because one of
the things that I did is I did research
on ways to make sure that this cuts the
most effective and it grinds the best
way and you want the meat almost frozen
so not through the solid but almost
frozen that it increases the performance
of the grinder so I’m pre cutting the
meat in distrib so that after they’ve
been in the freezer for a little while
then they’re going to find it fire right
in here just fine so the plan today is
I’m going to grind up this it’s gonna
make a lot of ground beef and the bulk
of it I’m then gonna package and save
for my first spring fishing trip that’s
not not actually that far away so come
on back after I put this in the freezer
the actual grinding process okay so I’ve
had the meet down in the freezer getting
it bit chilled up so it’ll grind a
little bit better now I’m going to go
through so one thing I should note here
is I’ve gone with 100% sirloin here I’ve
cut off the fat you put whatever meat
you want in here I’ve already done this
with a ground chuck and I made burgers
they were fabulous
this is sirloin other people who put
some pork or some filler so I’ve got the
attachment on I’m going to put it onto
four and then you’re going to hear the
noise and then I’m going to start
feeding the the meat in and you can see
it grind up
that one here
there you go folks you can see it coming
out
and it’ll just pull it down you can give
it a little bit of a you know help just
give it a little push with your finger
or don’t forget you’ve got the plunger
so in the case of the plunger
instead of fortunately you can see that
she’s coming out but because of the word
drive it grabs it and pulls it as it
goes but now you can see the importance
of having the right size of your meat I
mean this beautiful the other thing you
could consider doing so you could put in
different meats and change the order
that you’re putting them into mix it up
together there is put in nice princes
and then you can pre spice sure your
burgers for your meat however you want
to do it so what I’m going to do is I’m
going to keep grinding away here so you
see have that lots of meat to do and
then I’ll show you the finished results
all right so I’m all done I ground up
all that meat get it in one shot I’ve
got two bowls this is a you know the
first ball is working with you can see
between the two of them I’ve got over
ten pounds of fresh ground beef ready to
go so some of that I’m going to put it
into you know ziplock bags and to just
ground beef use that for growing a pasta
sauce others I’m going to actually put
into hamburger patties and freeze those
up in a food savers you know vacuum
sealed next time I’m going to see those
is what I’m gonna be on the far north of
Ontario on a fishing trip so a little
quick summary first of all I was able to
clean this in the sink you can also put
most of it in the dishwasher if you want
it took seconds to clean this up because
most of it is plastic it cleaned up
super easy my overall impression is I’m
able to grind up a whole lot of meat
that I could see exactly what was going
in I could put the fat content that I
wanted I could get rid of any particles
I didn’t want I could buy that a price I
wanted to I could grind it up as easily
as I wanted to done and now I know
exactly what’s going into the food that
my family is eating and I can control
the budget and this little attachment by
the way
I think it’s around $80 Canadian and so
if you’ve already got a stand mixer
you’ve already made the significant
investment now all you do is need to
purchase the add-on which is exactly
what I’m gonna do so thanks to
KitchenAid for loaning me this you’ve
just converted one person to making a
sale
